The holds are all there, just move fast to avoid the pump... Good climb to cycle for a workout.

This route is exciting and steep. Shake it out at the jug below the third bolt then dont stop til the chains. Hard and sustained, but great.

My favorite clipping hold fell off of this route recently. Before, I thought this route was more like a 5.10c/d, but now I feel it's more like a 5.10d.

even if you have done this millions of times I still think its more like 10d

This climb is really a 5.11a. I've climbed every climb at this area multiple times and in comparison it's definitely 5.11a. Anyone trying to call this 5.10b is just trying to sound tough. Holds have definitely broken since it first went up.

SUSTAINED and pumpy! the crux sequence is a little tricky but very cool!

This climb is a 5.10+, not a 5.10b.

I think with the right sequence this isn't any harder than 10c. Climb above the fourth bolt to better holds to clip from.

fun route, as other have said probably more like 10.C...although if you are using the crappy holds I guess it could feel harder

fyi, left quick link at the anchors on the hanger end should be replaced...rusted and gouged half way through.

^^[the old quicklink has been replaced with a new one!]

Once you have done this fifty times, it really is 5.10b/c at the easiest, probably more like 5.10c/d. I am not going to pretend that it is not demanding and physical. But this is SLC, where I have seen pre-adolescent girls literally huck warm up laps on my V6 project in LCC (Lance's Dihedral at Secret Garden). Once you know your sequence and which holds to use and which are sucker holds, it is an okay climb. It is not really a great warm up, as the pumpy business comes on fast and it is so short.
